The age of 4K Blu-ray is finally here, delivering the best video quality of any in-home format to date.
We have chosen the following discs from among the 300 or so available so far. These movies not only show off the capabilities of your brand-new television, they’re also good. (Well, we liked them, at least.)
All of these titles include the 4K disc as well as the standard 1080p Blu-ray copy in the package. To watch the 4K version you’ll need a 4K TV and a 4K Blu-ray player, such as the Samsung UBD-K8500. All of the 4K discs also include HDR (high dynamic range) information, and when watched on a compatible HDR TV they can look noticeably better than standard Blu-ray.
